The musical genius of Aqua

Wow.

Just had a peruse through Aquarium, Aqua's seminal debut.

Suddenly, it's 1997. I'm playing Final Fantasy VII. The Expos still exist. The summer's here. Good times good times. It's 6th grade dance. What a wonderful trip down memory lane

Let's take a post to appreciate the heart-breakingly poingent Dr. Jones with its campy romp of a music video. Let's remember the rollercoaster ride of Lollipop (Candyman). Coming from Bounty Land, no less. Oh my love, you know you are my candyman. Life was simple, dammit.

I completely forgot about the one-two punch of female lead vocals and weird-ass spoken word German guy growling coming from Bountyland.

Good times.






EDIT: Where the hell did all my Last.fm friends go? My friends list is empty all of a sudden

It's 1997, indeed.

methinks you need to put 2 and 2 together, my friend.

I am ashamed to admit to owning and enjoying this album when it first came out. I still remember most of the lyrics.

The thought of it makes me shudder.

Nostalgia.

My friends and I made a mock music video for Dr. Jones at a sleepover. What I wouldn't give to get my hands on that tape.

Where's Timothius when you need him...

I loved Aqua when they came out. They were fun and colourful, and I was young and impressionable. It was a good combination.
